I have been wanting some good pictures done for awhile now. We had some taken while we were still living in Kentucky, but I wasn't happy with them for several different reasons - the biggest being we wanted a sunset picture and the photographer missed the light! I'm not sure how she managed that, but seriously!
After doing a bit of research, we picked Capture Imaging to take our family picks. I'm glad we did - they turned out great! Liz was our photographer, and she worked so well with our family and kids. She was very go-with-the-flow of what the kids were doing, while still directing the family into general ideas for shots.
We arrived at Birubi Beach at 9:00 in the morning, in an attempt to avoid the heat and crowd. It mostly worked, although I believe that was the hottest day we'd had up until that point. We started out with several group pictures on the beach.
|I can't even begin to tell you how much I adore this picture.|
Love my boys so much!
|I love Will's sandy legs and feet|
|Run from the surf!|
Then we were off to pose on the rocks and dunes.
|Nath's face is priceless|
|This captures the boys personalities perfectly!|
|How else would one get down from the dunes?|
|Hey Tyra, here's a textbook schmize!|
|My sweet boy with his beautiful dimples|
|My sweet boy with the beautiful eyes|
And then we let the kids play in the surf.
|Off they go - freedom!!!!|
|Not actually from the same place, but I'm an equal|
opportunity mum - no favourites here!
We had a blast taking these pictures, and boy was it hard to chose which ones to buy - which of course leads to spending more money than planned. That said, I don't regret the purchase and will love these pictures forever. Not only do the capture my boys personalities so incredibly well, they're in a place we adore living and will always have incredible memories!
And I'd be remiss if I didn't show you one of my very favourite pictures ever:
|Nice to have a picture of just the two of us!|
Hey mom, you can have a copy of this one! Unlike the one from Suz's wedding, I don't appear to be naked! (I was wearing a strapless dress and it was a close-up of the two of us dancing)
And on that note, I promise to soon get a post on our New Year. I hope your celebration was wonderful and that you and yours have the best year yet!
